How many times am I supposed to say “a must see” in Rome? Here is another one. The hill was a place of many a patrician palace in ancient times. Nowadays there are pleasant Orti Farnesiani and ruins of many palaces some with great mosaics. However, we were too tired to appreciate it all having started with Colosseum in the morning, then moving through the Forum in the mid-day July heat, then up the Palatine. We love the antiquity but the elements-the summer heat- conspired against us and we moved through Palatine fairly swiftly. Yet it IS a magical place well worth visiting. Just not in Summer. We loved it nevertheless.

We visited the Colosseum archeological park and the Palatine. it was a fanttasic experience,
we recommend buying the ticket for the archaeological park at a cost of € 18.00 with which you can access the colosseum, the palatine hill and the Roman forum..
From the top of Palatine hill we enjoyed a fantstic view on the city

It is mind blowing how the romans built this place and that are some pieces still standing. Their sense of architecture and creativity is out of this world. There were archeologist working at the site when I went and wish I spoke enough Italian to ask them about their work.

Walk were the Emperors roamed.

Amazing constructions and the outdoor stadium - the restored lower fountains and a view over the Circus Maximus where you imagine chariots and gladiators battling

Every time I come to Rome, I try to get to the observation deck from Piazza Campidoglio to see the place where the heart of the Eternal City beat. Although in fact it is now just a pile of romantic ruins. For the first time 15 years ago, of course, I paid for a ticket and wandered among the columns and stones below. It makes no sense to repeat it every time. The Roman Forum disappoints at first acquaintance. Probably, most of those who have read something before expect more. Once there was a lot of political life here. People's tribunes spoke here, consuls were elected, courts were held, according to the results of which criminals were executed. Right here. Without sentiment. At the same time, money changers worked here. As you know, non olet - money does not smell. By the time of the empire, everything was built up here - temples, triumphal columns, porticos, etc. The destruction of ancient Rome is associated with its capture by the Goths in 410 and especially by vandals in 455. However, no one destroyed as much as the Christians, pulling apart ancient buildings for their churches and ordinary Romans for their homes. The Forum fell into disrepair and overgrown with grass by the beginning of the Renaissance. The place became known exclusively as Campo Vaccino, cow field. Then excavations began, but alas, little was returned. What we see...

Worth the walk up! A beautiful city view from the top of the hill. Amazing how this has all withstood time.

Great walk on the imperial hill of ancient Rome, looking out over the Forum Romanum and good views on the Colosseum. Terrific experience in the pouring rain.

Palatine Hill and the history were truly one of the biggest hits for us on our trip. We walked all over the hill and the ruins and views were incredible. Again, this is worth hiring a tour guide for because there is just too much to learn on your own.
